Caroline Barral


Caroline has chaired the family holding company since its creation in 1994. Convinced of the central role that businesses should play in our society, she decided more than twenty years ago to use the family’s assets to support business owners in implementing their projects. 

Before dedicating her time to the family office, Caroline worked for BIPE, a major European consultancy providing forward-looking economic analyses, while also teaching at the prestigious “Sciences Po” school of political sciences in Paris and INALCO, the French national institute of oriental languages and civilisations.

She graduated from Sciences Po Paris and holds a doctorate in Economic Sciences.
